Dayton v. Kennedy

Returning Senator Mark Dayton to the Ranks of the Idle Rich in 2006

Red State Blues

While Minnesota's senior senator does not fall under the description of 'red state Democrat', he does nevertheless stand to lose a number of his colleagues who do. Among them, two Democrats named Nelson — Sens. Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Bill Nelson of Florida. Should, as now seems likely, President Bush succeed in expanding his party's majority in the upper house in two consecutive mid-term elections, it would signal full-fledged realignment.

Senator Ben Nelson may cry 'uncle' in the near term and take over the Department of Agriculture. Should he do so, it would build on a Republican 11-seat margin that would be the largest since 1928.

DvK can't resist the urge to use the coolest movie quote ever: "What is best in life? To crush your enemies. To see them driven before you. And to hear the lamentations of their women..." --Conan the Barbarian

Shame on me.
